How does automated amount extraction work?

Below is an example of the three steps our OCR software follows to automatically extract amounts from documents and images.

Upload a document or image to the API

The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a document containing the amount(s) to our API. It can be the total amount of an invoice or the amount of a line item, for example. Usually this is done from a mobile app, email, FTP or web application.

The document can be sent both cropped (without background) and uncropped (with background). If the image is sent uncropped, our API automatically crops it to the right size.   

Image to text using OCR

As soon as a picture or PDF has been received, it is converted to a TXT file. In this step all the amounts from the document are extracted, but the data is not yet structured.

Next to total amounts, other data fields can be extracted as well. For example, we can extract:

– Line item amounts
– VAT amounts
– Subtotal amounts
– And many more

Getting JSON output from the API

The Klippa Parser takes the data gained from the OCR in step 2 and converts it into structured JSON using machine learning. 

The JSON is then returned as output from the API. The amount on the document is now extracted. From here, the field can easily be processed into your database.

Whether you are processing amounts for accounting, financial, loyalty marketing or other purposes, Klippa is here to help.

The image on the left is a simplified example of the JSON response. More fields can be extracted if required.
